and when Baba appeared at 9 a.m., they made a path for Him to pass through. He then led the whole company up the Hill. When they arrived outside the Ashram they all rested, and Baba sat under a tree near the gate looking down the Hill. He allowed pictures to be taken of Himself and the crowd, then led the way to the tomb, after explaining through Eruch, Kaka, and two other men in four different languages, that He wanted assembled men to see the tomb, His last resting-place. Baba then got up and went to the tomb. All sat outside and Baba repeated what He had already said to us about the tomb. Also He told about the boy who drank half the coffee that was brought to Him during seclusion, and said, "For one complete year I took the prasad of that boy." The boy's name was Laher*.

 

He explained that the boarded-up window on the south side was formerly open, and during the period He was there, He sometimes put His legs outside, and the boys of the Prem-Ashram used to gather to take darshan. That was where the boy Chota Baba got his great spiritual experience; he was unconscious of the gross world for three days. "I had Pleader locked up in a small room here for two and a half years when he had milk only, and was given the order to keep silence and not to write. May God one day make him realize that Baba is the only Reality, the Highest of the High. When Pleader was locked up, a cobra came and hung over his head, but he did not move or call because of Baba's order. The cobra was there for three days and used to drink his milk. Then the one who brought the milk saw the cobra, informed the Mandali, one of whom came and killed the cobra. My Mandali who have been staying with Me for years would lay down their lives at My bidding."

 

Baba said there was no time to visit the place where He sat for month in complete seclusion, only communicating with the Mandali through a slit in the wall, but He pointed out where it was. The company then visited the tomb one by one. He then called the Western group to have a photograph taken, inquired from each about his health, and told them to go the pandal to get good seats.

 

All then returned to the pandal, and at 9:30 a.m. Baba entered the tent, mounted the platform and took His seat on the couch. Before He entered, the company was instructed not to rise on His entrance. He sat on the couch and looked at the company.
